Good news - Richard Dawkins is venturing up to the far north and doing a talk here in the back of beyond.
Bad news - not a ticket to be found.
It is absolutely maddening. You know that people are just getting tickets because he's famous. It is for sure that this event will be wall-to-wall with people who just want to be seen at the right events.
Ah well. Maybe it's better not to go anyway. I am firm in my atheism and need no persuasion or support. If my place is taken by someone who will learn something about atheism, then I guess I can live with that.
Now I just have to keep a firm grip on my middle-aged dignity and not turn up with my copy of the God Delusion and a pen at the stage door...
